Inspired by the unique beauty of Africa, and designed to last a lifetime, these beautifully handcrafted bags are gorgeous! Named after a exotic African antelope that is only found in the DRC’s Ituri rainforest’s, the ethos behind Okapi is to produce luxurious, artisanal accessories handmade entirely in Africa, creating job opportunities and growth while striving for exceptional quality. Each element of an Okapi bag is entirely sustainable, and 100% made and sourced by African Artisans, in various colors, all inserted with an 18-Carat gold plated hardware and beautiful Springbok horns that give the Okapi bags a luxurious and signature look. The main collection of the Okapi bag which are beautifully named as Lamia (The African Queen), Ayesha (She), and Oya (The Warrior) were named after three African Goddesses. These bags are definitely the definition of a Luxurious Goddess. If only an Okapi bag would magically appear before my eyes.
